But what if you (the builder) WANT to do that? (you wouldn't want to have
it really cold in an inn just because it's winter outside for example,
would you?) I think it would be reasonable to leave it to the people who
are adding zones to put in transition rooms/areas with climates in between
the zones they connect if desired (for example, you could put in a
forested valley between a snowy mountain range and a hot desert).
